Physical Education: Our Vision

Our main objectives are enjoyment, involvement and the development of student’s health and fitness. Promoting Leadership is also a major focus for the department and we currently have many Sports Prefects in years 10 & 11.

Key Stage 3

The KS3 curriculum is based around ‘Assessment for Learning’ and is at the centre of all learning. Students will be aware of their current levels of performance and understand how to improve in all areas taught. In year 9 students can apply to become a Sports Prefect and receive leadership training towards the Sports Leaders level 2 Award.
